Feel like a little activism?

In regards to Michael Yon's Thanks and Praise. The photo and accompanying article are making the rounds on the internet, but where the photo really needs to be seen is in your local newspaper. I haven't seen anyone champion this yet, but according to Michael Yon's email regarding its use, they are welcome to use it anytime between November 8, 2007 and November 15, 2007 free of charge.

If you agree then here's what I propose we do. Email your local paper's news department (my area it's and give them the link to the story -

Also, I'd recommend we give a little background. Yon is ex special forces and has been covering Iraq off and on since 2004 as an independent embedded reporter. They can get more on the man at his website, too.

There's an email link for them to contact who can set them up to use the story at the link.

Make sure to include the License Terms which you can cut from here.
